Take the xbox outside and pat down with a damp cloth. Then proceed to cool witha small fan. Leave outside over night to air out. Its a fact 60% of the time it works, everytime.

Someone plugged there xbox 360 HDMI cable into the USB port in a laptop. Now they get a E74 and 1 red light lower right side . What can they do now.


If you get the Xbox 360 1 red light message, it means that the problem is either with the DVD drive, or with the hard drive.

Fortunately, the Xbox 360 1 red light message is not something that you should worry about. In order to identify which of the two drives the Xbox 360 1 red light messages is referring to, just look the code number that the screen displays. DVD drive errors are identified with the codes E64, E65 and E66, whereas hard drive errors are identified with codes E67, E69 and E79.

Once you identify which error the Xbox 360 1 red light message is pointing to, fixing it is really easy. The guide available at Fix-xbox360.info will tell you what to do in each case, as well as what to do in case you get any of the other Xbox 360 lights messages. Check it out.

I red light e74 message on screen


The E74 error happens as the scaler chip that deals with all the display, you will need to stop the heat build up, you can do this yourself or you can send it in for repair.

When i turn the x box on it has one red light flashing in the bottom right hand corner and the error 73 message comes on


The problem has aroused due to the overheating of the console. The HANA scaler chip on the motherboard got overheated and this deals with the display on your console and that is why your Xbox is showing the e74 error.

If your Xbox 360 console is under warranty period, then without coming to the decision of self repairing you should send your console to the Microsoft service center and let them work for you. What is important on your part, you have to be patient for 5 weeks without gaming until you get back your favorite console repaired.

Xbox360, i flashing red light bottom right error message


The cause of E-74 with one red light Error might be overheating of your console and for avoiding such error in future you need to put your machine at an open space. Ensure that it is placed near the window or you can also make some external arrangement for cooling of console such as cooling the machine through a pedestal fan.
But as your Xbox already have E74 with one red light Problem which can be solved by only repairing it, no other alternative.
Either you can send your Xbox to Microsoft (Please note that microsoft is no longer providing extended warranty for E74 with one red lightError) and wait for 3-4 weeks. If you don't want to wait for a month, you can also fix E74 with one red light problem with the help of this DIY Video, the guide will explain step by step approach to fix the problem. Choice is yours........

XBOX ERROR


The official Microsoft KnowledgeBase article is here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941377/

You need to call 1-800-4MY-XBOX - your Xbox needs repair or replacement. It's now basically useless.

E74


There is high chance it's a scaler chip problem (the "ANA" or "HANA" chip near the AV cable connection) it can also be caused by a faulty AV cable so check that first. In some cases it is a problem with the GPU and may be repairable by doing the x-clamp replacement

so since you ruled out the av cable then it comes down to the scaler chip problem.

Contact microsoft and get it replaced, another thing you could do is if you have a multi-meter is use that on the output cables of the xbox it will register with some current 5w or so I think it is not 100% sure of that tho I would have to test to make sure.

But as far as a fix for the scaler chip. your best bet would be to call xbox In the US Customer Support can be reached at 1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269)

That way if any warrenty on it is not void, and you can get it fixed for free and they are very prompt with their fixing.

hope that helps

1 RED LIGHT BOTTOM LEFT CORNER


This usually means something is wrong with the graphics scaler. You'll eventually have to send your xbox in to have it fixed, and I believe it is covered under a one year warrenty.
